THE BAR association fighting for a share of international copyright, communications, entertainment, technology and trade- mark work, has announced its aims for the first time.
A soon-to-be published mission statement from the two-year-old CentreBar association reads: "A perfectly competitive market in legal, as in other, services requires that consumers of those services be perfectly informed.

It continues: "Only recently has the Bar begun to respond to those imperatives. CentreBar was created to bring together barristers, attorneys and senior industry figures from all over the world who meet its criteria of excellence."
